Habeck fails at WEF meetings

Dear Germans, our Bundesrat is called Rösti!

Switzerland and Germany have not really made any progress on the gas agreement. That became clear on Monday at the WEF. The German economics minister couldn’t even remember the name of his new counterpart.

The first public appearance by Environment Minister Albert Rösti (55) began with a faux pas – but not by him. The German Vice Chancellor and Economics Minister Robert Habeck (53) accidentally called his counterpart at a joint media conference “Colleague Röstli”.

Rösti didn’t show anything. He and Federal Council colleague Guy Parmelin (63) met Habeck at the WEF to talk mainly about the energy supply. Last year, there was an exchange between the economics ministers and Rösti’s predecessor, Simonetta Sommaruga (62), in Davos. At the time, the two countries announced that they would start negotiations on a gas solidarity agreement. This should take effect in an absolute emergency when the gas threatens to run out. Switzerland is very interested in this because it does not have any gas storage facilities itself.
